I have a friend, swear she saw Jesus
Hovering above her lonely bed
She said it changed her life forever
" Whatever works" I said
I sit with her changing channels
It's so hard to concentrate
I laugh at her, but I'm pretty sure
She's having a better day

So I will lay on the highway somewhere in New Mexico
And wait for a strange light to come and take me home
Or I will stand by the statue and wait for her to cry
To see real tears that seem sincere once before I die

The other night I talked to an old flame
Who finally said why he moved on
He said I didn't have faith in anything
I knew he wasn't wrong
I saw two lovers in the park
With that dreamy look of lust in their eyes
The whole world smiled as they passed by
They just make me mad

So I will lay on the highway somewhere in New Mexico
And wait for a strange light to come and take me home
Or I will stand by the statue and wait for her to cry
Take this jaded heart, blow it all apart, once before I die

I'll get down on my knees, something I don't believe
Somebody help me please, I'm starting to repeat myself
I'm starting to repeat myself

So I will lay on the highway somewhere in New Mexico
And wait for a strange light to come and take me home
Or I will stand by the statue and wait for her to cry
I'd love to see a miracle once before I die
Once before I die
